Five riders and six cypresses

Today I thought of posting one of my contributions that wasn’t excepted by a past Visual Verse edition since I like it anyway. I was wondering which photos would go with six riders. I know, six cypresses, thought I, gathered 10 photos of the same cypress field through the year, and then read my pieceContinue reading “Five riders and six cypresses”

Almost 50 documentaries

This post deals with all the documentaries that I have seen in the last three years. They are varied, sensational, ground-breaking, important, fun and neatly ranked and rated. But first, I wish to celebrate my friend Crystal, my generation, who celebrates her birthday today on a trip to Boston, one day after David Bowie, ElvisContinue reading “Almost 50 documentaries”

Series killer

Today we are going serial. No fear, I will not spoil any series for you, but here are all the TV series and miniseries that I have seen in the last three years. They are ranked and accompanied by outdoor sitting as spotted here in Tuscany. Yes, it has indeed been three years since myContinue reading “Series killer”

Tuesday Trees

There is no challenge with this name that I know of but it could well be. Today is just the Tuesday to show Suzanne, who celebrates Two weeks of trees, and all of you some trees in my life from my two countries. I have always wished to write a book. In fact, I stillContinue reading “Tuesday Trees”

Last photo in November

This time I knew exactly what day it was as I was strolling with bestia. The last day. So I had to pay attention to the last thing. Here it is, Monte Amiata on the right with a fresh coat of snow, untouched. Bushboy’s rules are simple:1. Post the last photo on your SD cardContinue reading “Last photo in November”

Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran

This was a brief but friendly encounter on the Slovenian coast five months ago when we went to the bus station to meet my incoming uncle. “Roma!” I heard behind me. I turned and there was the cutest terrier with the fanciest collar ready to meet bestia. Bestia, who is male if anybody still doubtsContinue reading “Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran”

Weekend Writing Prompt #235: Death by concert

I rarely decide on a new challenge since my blogging days are really full as it is, but Nope, Not Pam (last week) and Sunra Rainz prompted me to have a try at a new prompt. Each week writer Sammi Cox proposes the word and the length and off we go. This week it’s mirrorContinue reading “Weekend Writing Prompt #235: Death by concert”

My Friendly Friday airports

First of all, this post for Amanda turned out a bit long. Thank you for reading, really. As I told Snow Melts Somewhere recently, it takes a certain effort to be swept in anything these days. I truly appreciate it. The runway ends in a hillock, then there’s the fence, and then there’s us. TheContinue reading “My Friendly Friday airports”

Lens-Artists PC: London calling

I choose a place that many of you know and show it through my first digital camera’s eye as seen in 2010 because a Londoner said it was always interesting to see your home city through the eyes of a visitor. It was Sarah, and she picked some extraordinary architecture from North Korea for thisContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: London calling”

Wordless Wednesday 3/11/21

To make it a bit wordy, here is something that put a big smile on my face this week. Every month Visual Verse puts up an image and invites the world to write between 50 and 500 words to it. Through the month they keep publishing selected pieces until they reach 100 of them. WhenContinue reading “Wordless Wednesday 3/11/21”

Pic and a Word #286: Sailing to Punta Ala

This was my Tuesday. No, I wasn’t sailing. I came by car but had to return. Read all about it – prose this time instead of poem – and see for yourselves what the future is like. I think I was disappointed since I expected a lovely little old town but pleased because I knewContinue reading “Pic and a Word #286: Sailing to Punta Ala”

Friendly Friday friend

Let’s call him Rory since this is his name. It was not exactly travel, more like a job that brought me to Denmark, but travel around we did, a busload of students and I as a journalist. My last evening in the country, Rory was Irish, a writer and suddenly there. This was not aContinue reading “Friendly Friday friend”

CFFC: Circles and a few wheels

This is a compilation post of the kind that I love doing the most, especially since I don’t recall ever doing a circular gallery in eight years of blogging. I went quickly through all the photos that I took this year (almost 9500) and selected 24 various round shapes that caught my eye. But first,Continue reading “CFFC: Circles and a few wheels”

The story of a camera

This is the most palpable example of how blogging ripples. Not only you get the best people into your life, sometimes they bear astonishing gifts. All photos in this post are by Liz Pettit at Fetching the World. The new old camera, the wonderful past week, and the three quotes in this post are byContinue reading “The story of a camera”

Friendly Friday’s back to the future

This time our host Amanda has come up with a fascinating way of looking backward and forward at the same time, and she does it splendidly in her host post. Here is my look back with the help of dad’s amazing photography. This theme goes together well with Sandy’s Flashback vlog which she has beenContinue reading “Friendly Friday’s back to the future”
